Iron Maiden’s Trooper Ale Now Available In The House Of Commons Bar

Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, has welcomed the arrival of Iron Maiden’s Trooper Ale as the ‘Guest Ale’ in the Strangers’ Bar at the House of Commons.

As part of a tradition to promote relatively unknown British Ales, Strangers’ Bar in the House of Commons features ‘Guest Ales’ throughout the year. Mike, founder of Rock the House, Parliament’s biggest music competition, recently nominated Iron Maiden’s new Trooper Ale, which is brewed by Robinson’s Brewery in Stockport.

Commenting, Mike said, ‘As an Iron Maiden fan and an MP, it is a real treat to have this specialist ale as one of the guest ales in Parliament ‘ the fact that I also get to try it for the first time on my birthday is just a bonus. The guest ales programme is an excellent way of drawing attention to small and independent beers from around the UK and I would encourage any local brewers who would like opportunity to have their product showcased in Parliament to get in touch.’

Bruce Dickinson, vocalist for Iron Maiden, said: ‘I’m a lifelong fan of traditional English ale; I thought I’d died and gone to heaven when we were asked to create our own beer. I have to say that I was very nervous: Robinson’s are the only people I have had to audition for in 30 years. Their magic has been to create the alchemical wedding of flavour and texture that is Trooper. I love it.’
